  1. I suggest an express setup section, dedicated only to WinServer 2019 GUI installation and optimization (including the Windows GUI replacement of course). This should give you a much wider customer base. Since it is reported the SQ of optimized GUI is gaining on core, it would really help those of us that do not have the time investment to learn all the capabilities required for core use. Does 3.0 have a shutdown shortcut ? Does 3.0 have shortcut to Ethernet adapter options?
  2. The 200W HDPlex is not ATX
  3. Can Euphony be used to make a NAA computer for a separate HQPlayer server PC (running Windows10) and connected via Ethernet ?
  4. Have you checked the software named Bug Head Emperor ? Some comments on the JPlay forums. I have not followed the details, but seems this software may have some provisions for similarly preparing a file for playback.
  5. Maybe this storage performance problem is related to the software involved. In my recent experience: StarTech 2-Port USB3.1 (10Gbps) Card with 2x USB-A PCIe Interface Powered by extra back-panel rail of HDPlex 400W ATX PS using iFi DCiPurifier to Intona Industrial Isolator to StarTech.com USB 3.1 (10Gbps) Enclosure for 3.5” SATA Drives -Supports SATA III with WD Red WD40EFRX 4TB SATA 6Gbps Buffer 64MB IntelliPower HDD for NAS Powered by TeraDak 3A 12V PS using w/wo iFi DCiPurifier Using HQPlayer and also JPlay on .wav files only - using a Samsung 1 TB SSD with separate LPS was preferable. The sound quality from the external box solution seemed veiled and strained by comparison. This was tested on a single PC, Asus B150M-Plus, NOFAN, i7-7700T, 8GB, INTEL SSD X25-E 64GB for OS, HDPlex ATX 400 LPS w/separate LPS's for the SSD's, JCAT USB card powered by Uptone LPS-1 with LT3045 1.5A box, Winserver2012 core w/AO Dedicated listening room using speakers with a measured in-room rise approx. 6db after 10kHz
  6. My personal experience has been SSD's (up to 1TB) with separate and individual LPS's is better than a 4GB HDD in external USB 3.0 enclosure powered by 3A LPS and with Intona Industrial USB Isolator inline between the PC and and enclosure. (StarTech.com USB 3.1 (10Gbps) Enclosure for 3.5” SATA Drives with WD Red WD40EFRX 4TB SATA 6Gbps Buffer 64MB IntelliPower HDD) This is all possibly software dependent... I am not 100% sure, but when I tested HQPlayer seemed to not cache upsampled files into memory.. the enclosure read-LED was doing a disco light show while playing using HQPlayer.. When I tested the external enclosure with JPlay this LED activity was greatly reduced and sometimes eliminated dependent on the software settings. Even then, in my system I still think an SSD with separate and individual LPS's is preferable.
  7. ...looking forward to your impressions for sound quality - 2016 vs. 2019 if possible...

    HQ Player

    Hi, Sorry if this has been asked before, but how do I know which filters will not revert to an "Auto rate family" type scenario and upsample at an even multiple? I need upsample PCM (various) to fixed PCM 384 KHz only.. Also, if there are any suggestions for a filter that would do this with good detail, that would be much appreciated. computer is i7-7700T w/ 8GB Many thanks in advance...

  10. This is interesting, thanks... but how do you use this for simple album playback?
  11. Dan, Thanks... this is a very interesting point of reference.. Quick question..... What is the OS on the NUC Server?
  12. I have had successful correspondence with all 3 addresses, but the 888 seems to be Michael, so best to put his name in the subject line... sometimes his account seems to drop emails. maybe add a link to this thread as a little extra incentive.. I have one of their 210W ATX supplies running 24/7 since September 2014 without problems.. sounds fantastic. I hope your problem gets sorted out quickly.
  13. Yes I was, very sorry and I have edited my post. I think it would be good if you would please do likewise to remove the false relation Thanks
  14. I do not understand your comment above.... http://archimago.blogspot.com/ I would think this generates revenues?
  15. until then I will not patronize the advertisers unless I know them from another source
